Originally published in 1970. Mark Twain is generally known as a children’s writer. This serious and appreciative introduction by I. M. Walker shows that he is in fact a great writer who produced mature and developed literature. The study of his works is divided into five sections: the comic narrator; techniques of humour; character portrayal; style and description; and irony and satire.
